ABOUT BELLA & BONE – IT’S ALL ABOUT DOGS
How Bella & Bone Got Started
We began Bella & Bone back in 2014. It's always been about dogs in our house - ever since we began to foster dogs, over 15 years ago. I then became a board member for a rescue group. My husband, Stanley, and I realized that starting the company would enable us to help raise much-needed funds for local rescue groups. We created doggy spa products with the help of a very talented local artisan.
For a short while, life got in the way of us pursuing our goals for the company. But now, here we are in 2018 and it's action-stations, once again, at Bella & Bone - starting with a brand new look for our products.
We are very excited about the new Bella & Bone products that we have (check out our beautiful, handcrafted, limited edition bandanas for starters!). We will also be adding some talented local artisans work to our store, so please keep an eye out for them.
Our goal is still to support as many rescue groups as we can and to find as many unique pet products along the way. All to help raise much-needed funds for the rescue groups, and our favorite charities. Please follow our social media pages all our fundraising efforts.
Meet Bella & Bone’s top dogs – ‘Ms. Maggie’ and ‘Lilli Wonderful’, respectively.
These two ‘pups‘ (not so puppy any longer!) are the inspiration for us getting us into all things taking care of dog business. It’s thanks to them that we started Bella & Bone.
Both are rescues – Maggie is a Pitbull, and Lilli is…well, Lilli Wonderful (named by my young daughter, and co-founder of B&B, Isabella - aka Bella), we were told that she was a Rottweiler pup… . Ha!!! Wrong! She is actually more of a hybrid, Rottweiler/Shar Pei mix… amongst other things. Happily, she kinda grew on us and is now an integral part of the family. And, it was down to these little ladies and their love of our B&B handcrafted organic treats that we then moved onto organic doggy spa products; starting with a natural shampoo soap bar and an organic multi-use Bella & Bone Balm.
We sourced some of the finest artisanal crafters in the business today – using their knowledge, expertise and, above all, an understanding of B&B’s needs. We worked closely together, as a committed and caring team, to ensure we created the best products we could.
Ingredients:- Organic mango butter, organic unrefined shea butter, organic coconut oil, candelilla wax, vitamin E. Each of the ingredients are were deliberately sort out for their healing and protection abilities. We also - and the most important part - had to make sure that all ingredients were pet-friendly.
Even Bullies need a (B&B) balm!
And, because we love ALL dogs, B&B isn’t just about Ms. Maggie & Lilli Wonderful. In our 'Pup of the Month' gallery, we post images of our other favorite dogs too – and, sometimes, their human pals! Such as Carol Moulton, seen here with her trainer’s dog, ‘Clover’ (thanks for sharing this great photo with B&B, Carol!).
More doggy news coming soon, so please come back and visit us!
Woof, woof, from the team!
